Re: [1555] Go see her

MegaTokyo is the ultimate open ended sandbox game. Erika and Largo are a married couple in unMod, the reality that MegaTokyo is nested within. What happens in MT may or may not be reflecting the unMod reality of their relationship which includes Largo's high stress police work, their house in the s...

Re: [1555] Go see her

So, I take it that Largo still can not understand Japanese? He seems to be watching their body language in a rather intense fashion. I really do hope he bows out of this impending visit to Moeko. He's a bull in a china shop and without being able to understand the language,he's probably going to sti...

Re: [1554] the parts needed

I guess I am just wired differently than some of these characters, then. When I hear words like "I don't have any of the parts needed", red flags go off big time. As a scientist, I take statements like that seriously and then have to consider the possibilities ranging from "radical surgery" all the ...

Re: [1554] the parts needed

With regards to Megumi's ears and tails, there might have been some issues with regards to the direction that the potential witnesses were facing. Although, I must admit Granny should have gotten a pretty damn good view of her tails in that one scene. Why she never commented, well, I guess we might ...

Re: [1554] the parts needed

Someone PLEASE tell me what the HELL is it gonna take for Megumi to finally clue in. Even if I hadn't already known that Ping was an android from reading the previous strips in this comic, her dialogue in this particular strip practically SCREAMS "I'm a synthetic". Surely Megumi can't be THAT dense,...

Re: [1553] Oops

I don't really know sign language so please forgive me if I am misinterpreting this, but in that last panel was Ashe trying to cut Megumi off from saying anything else about Piro and Kimiko? If so, I have a funny feeling that Ashe and Granny might be the only sensible ones in that room right now.

Re: [1552] All of either of them

So, in the previous thread, I had mentioned the possibility that Megumi was in the process of awakening to become a nine-tailed kitsune (assuming those tails and ears were not jokes). Ashe is about to spill the beans to Megumi. I wonder how Megumi will react to this information. Is THIS what will fi...

Re: [1551] A little rough

I dunno, I'm pretty sure that the clan wouldn't be able to suppress a nine tail without her permission. Don't forget that MT revolves around different perceptions of people and things around them. Frequently the characters self image is very much at odds with reality as well. Fred does love his "fr...

Re: [1551] A little rough

Could she possibly be POSSESSED by a nine-tail? The tails and ears are quite real. Maybe she had the nine-tail sealed in her abdomen by ninja as part of a desperate attempt to save their village. :ninja: Oh gawd, not that. I hope not that. I see that show as the ninja version of "Drag-on Ball"........

Aww. Contradicting myself entirely, I wanted Megumi to be a kitsune. First she’s stuck being unloved, then she’s deprived of tails and magic...boo. That said, please let this scene end already... Sorry, that all sounded really entitled. I’m just whining, please don’t take it seriously. Honestly, if...

Re: [1551] A little rough

Here's another one, it has been mentioned several times that her bow in her hair seems to move on it's own. How much do you want to bet that she is also using Kitsune magic to create an illusion to hide her ears. Before this wondering goes too far, all i want to say is that as far as Megumi knows, ...

Re: [1551] A little rough

So, I was correct in taking Invisigoth's easrlier observations to heart. Megumi is most likely a NINE tail kitsune. She is also the most normal acting of the Sawatari women we have seen thus far. Of the two women, her and Mugi, Megumi could be considered the "good girl" of the family. Now for a bit ...

Re: [1550] Raging noises

Agreed, Darrin. This man is quite amoral and does not seem concerned about the consequences of his actions. What he is doing now is not necessarily evil but his actions are inexorably leading him down a path that almost certainly WILL involve acts of incredible evil. Compared to creating and enslavi...

Re: [1549] The sum of our parts

If you think Dr. Gero is evil then you also perforce believe building Ping was evil. My opinion is that the questions of why she was built, and what's going to be done to her (and her compatriots) now that she's been built, should also factor into that consideration. (That is, Ping being awesome do...

I would like to point out that this scientist knows enough about human behavior to allow him to create complex algorithms that enable his androids to mimic it to a rather realistic degree. This man should therefore KNOW what kind of pain he might be subjecting his "test" subjects to, should they eve...

Re: [1549] The sum of our parts

I keep seeing references to the scientist as "creepy" and "creeper". These references appear to be often accompanied by additional language to suggest that the term is in reference to a perceived notion that he is a pervert of some kind. I can not see any of that kind of behavior in this man. No, he...

Wait, this is interesting. Mr. research scientist doesn't know about Kitsune? He thinks those ears and tails are fashion accessories? So he is not as culturally or genre aware as I thought he was. I wonder what other things he has missed, and how might that affect his ability to program realistic b...

Re: [1547] realistic girl architectures

For the most part, this seems to be going as I thought it would. The scientist more or less views Junko and perhaps the other girls as just material to be used for his project. We still yet, however haven't seen how much this new development is going to direct this scientists' attention towards Ping...

True, but then I think he'd need some way of keeping tabs on her from a distance in that case. If Sony had a way to keep track of Ping from a distance, I think Ed would be having a much easier time bringing her back in. Would it be possible that the project is in such an early stage of development ...

There might be a misunderstanding here. Darrin, I do not for a moment think of this chap as a Noonian Soong or a Tony Stark. It can be argued that both Soong and Stark have a strong sense of morality, even if it does not exactly match that of their societies in which they exist. No, THIS fellow give...
